, with shepard smith. >>shepard: breaking news in the coordinated attack on the united states consulate in libya and murder of the united states ambassador on 9/11. there is no apparent to it. he was absolutely murdered. lib al-libi -- libyan officials made an arrest. no one will confirm the information. u.s. officials tell fox to be "cautious," about reports of arrests. according to reuters, quoting libya's interior minister four men are in custody and under investigation suspected of helping events at the u.s. consulate. "helping." f.b.i. and others are on the ground in the early stages of the investigation. top priority here? find out whether the strike on the consulate was a planned assault by terrorists rather than a rampageing mob angry other antimuslim video. catherine is in washington, dc, first on the reported arrests. >> this afternoon, the intelligence community is trying to knock down the report. this question was put to the state department. i saw the press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them. obviously, it would be a good thing if we are moving forward on thi
with a black islamist flag. according to the a.p., both are triggered by a movie produced in the united states that protesters say is anti-muslim. the a.p. reports it was made by an anti-muslim extremist. we are tracking the breaking news and will bring you developments throughout the hour. also, you are looking live at ground zero, september 11, the day none of us will forget. we will remember that day with you. and why won't president obama meet with netanyahu? but first, an urgent warning. it is about our nation's debt. as if the threat of going over the fiscal cliff isn't bad enough, it now gets worse. if congress doesn't reach a budget deal, moody's will cut its triple-a realitying by one notch, so can congress strike a deal? and avoid this downgrade? senator john thune is on the budget finance committee. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, greta. >> greta: so. moody's says they doll this. >> this is the latest warning we have gotten. obviously, this is not the first time that we have been warned. this is the most predictable crisis we have ever had. we know exactly how serious the situa
, the global public square. welcome to all of you around the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we have at important story for you today. start with the proet -- protests. we'll talk to paul wolfowitz and others. next up, michael lewis spent eight months in the white house with unprecedented access to president obama. we'll talk about who obama is and how he makes decisions. also, why is israel trying to get the united states to commit to waging war when israel itself isn't willing to do so. and finally we'll take a look at these pictures. do you think they were taken by nasa or the european space agency? no, a teenager with a second-hand camera. >>> but first here's my take. the images of the american embassy burning in benghazi might have conjured up memories of tehran in 1979, but the analogy is false. in libya, the government is not fomenting anti-americanism. it is fighting it, openly declaring america an ally and friend. libya is pro-american by two to one. the violence there appears to have been the work of small extremist elements that lack much popular support.
intervening in syria. saying the body of the united states and iran is moving into syria and that spells big trouble for israel? >> indeed on whole range of fronts. their support for terrorism continues. they have influenced the regime in iraq and prepared to shed a lot of syrian blood to stay in power. they finance hezbollah and hamas in gaza strip and worse of all they continue to build a broad and nuclear weapons program. what is unmistakable despite the blurs ter that is coming from the obama administration, they are not afraid of the united states. they do not fear this president. they do not fear the united states. they do not fear consequences for their actions. as long as that belief holds true in tehran they will continue to support terrorists and build a nuclear weapons program. >> greta: a u.s. senator once said to me while i was lamenting there were so many problems across the world, he said to me we can't solve the problems, we can only manage them. that should be our goal in light of the fact so many variables. are we managing these different hot spots around the world and give
diplomates. including united states ambassador chris stevens in benghazi, libya, in what officials believe was a terrorist attack designed to coincide with the anniversary of september 11th. and joining us dan henninger, mary anastasia o'grady and, with the anti-american protests across the arab world this week, tell us about our standing in that part of the world, and the ferment in arabia? >> well, i think, paul, what's happening here is where essentially we came in when the arab spring began in egy egypt, tunisia and spread to other countries and the feeling at that time that came out the united states couldn't really support any of these movements in the arab spring because quote unquote, we don't know who these people are, which is to say that the united states, and including the state department, just was not that engaged with these countries at that time. now, when you think of how, to what extent egypt or libya since these transitions have been in the news, it's been basically not at all on their own, and still a piece with the obama administration's policy on foreign policy, to lo
. and may god continue to bless the united states of america. thank you. >> and that was secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the state department about tuesday's attack in libya that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans, saying that this is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths and reminding people that the u.s. is a force for peace and progress and that this attack was by a small and savage group of individuals. we remind you that president obama will comment at the white house less than an hour from now. we will also bring you that statement live. this has been a cbs news special report. i'm norah o'donnell along with charlie rose in new york. for those of you in the west, our coverage of this breaking news story continues. >>> good morning. to our viewers in the west, it is wednesday, september 12th, 2012. welcome to ""cbs this morning." the u.s. ambassador to libya has been killed. we'll have complete coverage from the middle east to washington. >>> the white house denies the president is snubbing israel's prime minister
, a celebrity of the united states instead of the president. >> the president's decision not to meet with the prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here for the united nations session i think is a mistake, and it sends a message throughout the middle east that somehow we distanced ourselves from our friends. i think the exact opposite approach is what's necessary. >> what do you make of the republican view that the president has no time for prime minister netanyahu but time for "the view"? >> prime minister netanyahu is not in new york in the days the president is in new york. the president's not in new york on the days whe prime minister netanyahu will be in new york. the president just recently had a conversation with prime minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour, i believe, and that was just one in countless conversations that they've had. >> you say that he's got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules, but the president has blocked out time to appear on "the view" on tuesday. so he has time for whoopi goldberg but he doesn't have time for world lead
vowed to bring justice to the killers in this libyan attack. to the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. make no mistake. we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who have attacked our people. since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject denigrating the religious police of others. there is absolutely no type of excuse for this type of senseless violence. megyn: joining me now we have two guests. bill, thank you for being here. i want to talk to you as a former communications person. about the response we have seen this morning from the president and from governor romney. >> it is a very difficult time. i thought the president's remarks looked a little devoid of passion. governor romney is getting a lot of criticism for his position with the president, but i think he is right to make a point. the world is a very dangerous place. when people think they can attack america with tyranny. megyn: why would our state department and embassy be coming out with p
the united states, in fact, for something like this. i think thers going to be a lot of, you know, the u.s. is really going to hunker down and think about how they want to proceed now. not just in libya but in the whole region. >> elise, this is brooke. let me just, as john points out, you know, diplomats really are certainly mourning this morning and we're covering the ory, really there's no way any other network can. if we can just back up and if you can help us fill in the blanks as far as what exactly happened. here we are day two now of protests. we've been covering the protests in cairo and in benghazi. we remember covering the revolution, it was really the rebel stronghold last year. explain what exactly happened as far as this ambassador is concerned and the three other workers who were apparently with him in his car? >> details are very sketchy right now. what we understand is we knew yesterday, towards the end of the day, that as we were watching those pictures at the embassy in cairo, there were gunmen that had approached the u.s. consulate in benghazi, and breached the walls
and what it is. here is what we know. investigators in the united states and libya say the astack on the consulate was likely an act of terror and likely timed to mark the 9-11 terrorist attacks. the libyans say it was a two-part operation. investigators are looking into whether it was an inside job. one that included locals and a raid on a supposedly secret safehouse. the chairman of the u.s. house intelligence committee says it was a coordinated military style, commando type operation. tonight spokesmen at the white house, the pentagon, state department, all say they can not confirm the libyan report of arrests. and u.s. officials are urging everyone involved to take the arrest news with a grain of salt. a senior libyan official says four men are in custody and we're conducting ways of interrogating them because they are suspected of helping instigate the events at the u.s. consulate. u.s. intelligence officials have said there is zeroing in on a certain militant group that fits the al-qaeda signature. the f.b.i. sent teams of personnel to libya and the boss at the justice depar
at this crisis? speak of the united state unites attacked september 11, 11 years ago, and united states attacked september 11 yesterday. what does that mean? the united states territories, the embassy, it was egypt and libya. were they coordinated attacks? when the president came out, as you rightly did, he should have followed that by saying these attacks are not going to be tolerated, we will hold the host governments responsible for this. some indication even in egypt there was advanced warning these attacks are coming which is why the americans had gotten out of that embassy. the president of the united states needs to say to those countries who will hold you responsible, have to protect our people, you have to have better protection of our people and if you don't do that we will reassess our relationship with you because if you don't stand strong right now, this is what happened to jimmy carter and why ronald reagan was elected. jimmy carter did not do something strong. he apologized, said let's try to negotiate and that is the kind of response i heard from president obama. dagen: did we ha
american diplomats? >> reporter: no reaction yet regarding the reaction by the united states. but, anderson, earlier today, we heard from senior government officials, the former prime minister now of libya and the speaker of parliament holding a press conference, strong condemnation of the attack vowing to bring the speaker to justice, saying this attack coincided with september 11th, believing there was a link there, hence, it was carried out by islamic extremist groups that operate in eastern libya, and saying that libya will not allow the revenge attacks against the west, and at the same time, saying they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups, people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans i've spoken to today are really saddened by this attack and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> the state department, we saw a very grave secretary of state clinton condemning the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned attack. the attack in benghazi, libya. what more are we learning about the attacks and the measures t
islamists. their bodies returned to the united states. a solemn ceremony with president obama and secretary of state clinton. among those honoring the murdered americans at andrews air force base earlier today. >> mrs. clinton praising the murdered americans for their courage and sacrifice to our country. the people of egypt and libya and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tierney of a mob. lou: a precisely timed two-part operation under cover of more than 200 demonstrators angry at an anti-mohammed movie. the protesters stormed the consulate, armed militants traveled to a nearby safe house to attack the evacuated americans. libyan officials say the people within the governments own security forces to stop the terrorists to the safe houses location. the unrest is spreading beyond the region. violence erupted in tunisia and the german embassy set afire. american fast food restaurants also torched. demonstrations in afghanistan. palestinians and in jerusalem protests in america. american flags were burned outside the embassy. president obama vow to do better to protect am
is enshrined in our laws . our constitution protects the right to free speech. here in the united states, countless publicications provoke offense. like me, the majorit of the merrence are christian and yet we don't ban blasphemy on our sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander of chief of our military i accept people call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> steve: if the president continues to talk about freedom of speech we have in this country, that's true. but why the dumb movie? he kept referring to the movie as the cause of the movie. the administration said it is nootnot true. >> gretchen: i can think of countless other examples of freedom of speech . maybe he shouldn't have chosen himself of people speaking poorly approximate him. is that a plan because of the election? some people say yes including newt gingrich. >> hillary clinton is a serious problem. and barack obama is ambitious person. they are different. hillary clinton gets up every day thinking of public policy. barack obama gets up every day thinking about bark ob
the world, american embassies and even german and british beamtions are on high alert. united states marines so-called fast teams. teams to secure embassies are being dispatched throughout the middle east to ensure the safety of our personnel abroad in many public squares across the middle east, flags are being burned and embassies are attempting to be entered by some of these protesters. a terrifying map if you think about it it includes not just countries you would expect to experience unrest. countries like tunisia that you would think relatively unstable. that as it at this that that that -- >> jay carney, the white house press secretary says something eyebrow-raising and interesting yesterday when he was asked what the source of all this unrest is. let's listen: this is a fairly volatile situation not in response to united states policy. not to to obviously the administration or the american people. it is response to it a video, a film that we have a judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protest directe
after a very specific time p type of voter. and a new warning that puts the united states really sort of in a greek myth, between the ultimate rock and a hard place. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erwin burnet. outfront tonight, we have breaking news. an american we can confirm now has been killed in libya tonight at the consulate, according to a libyan interior ministry official. this is a horrible result of a day of violence against america in the middle east. armed men stormed the american consulate in benghazi libya, tonight, setting it on fire after a protest against an american-produced movie they say insults the prophet, mohammed. this was just hours after egyptian protesters scaled the was of the american embassy in cairo, tearing down the american flag. the protesters there tried to raise a black flag, with the words "there is no god, but alla and mohammed is his messenger." we're in cairo with the latest on the situation. ian, obviously, we're sad to confirm that breaking news on an american who has been killed and the violence in libya. but the outburs
for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached that the first response of the united states must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> there's no space between this kind of talk and what we heard from sarah palin in the campaign four years ago. catch her act. >> we see an america of exceptionalism. yes. usa. usa! our opponent is someone who sees america as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists that targeted their own country. >> this gets back to you, ron. i want you to take off here. we will get back to cynthia, but seems to me you found something interesting. instead of leading, he is shrinking down to something smaller than the campaign was. i can be crazy, i can talk like sarah palin, because that seems to be the language it takes to win a republican constituency. it is sad to watch somebody get smaller as the campaign goes on, reaching down to the people who think
today. a baby panda was born in the united states. now, a 14-year-old giant panda, you can see her right there being very protective of her young. gave birth at the smithsonian national zoo today. this is just her second cub. the next few years are going to be crucial for the baby, which is, i mean, doesn't get any cuter than this. the size of a stick of butter. in keeping with chinese tra dig, the new cub will not be named for 100 days despite the ft th cub s made in thu.s.a., it must returned tohina in four years. tonight's numb, 1 billion. the dollar amount china has illegallysidized itsuto industry. between the years 2009 and 2011, china provided export subsidies to chinese carmakers that e a violation. this comes on the heels of another filing that chinaal imposed -- $3 billion. really starts to add up. china says unlike its pandas, the issue isn't so black and white and today, the chinese filed their own action against the u.s. saying a new u.s. trade bill would be deeply unfair. and by the way, what's up to time magazine naming pandas as the most evil animals of all time. ahead,
on as people say, look, we're going up against the awesome power and the united states is a global power, but we will defend the honor of islam, defend the honor of the prophet. people sort of feel that this is protesting, not because they want to threaten american lives because they feel under assault. their red lines for what's acceptable speech are different from ours. i really don't see anything that is sort of different kind of anti-americanism. i don't see anything that's a different kind of violence. this feels to me like the kinds of things we have periodically seen throughout the middle east, often about an offense against islam which brings people out into the streets and then people go back into their homes. >> let's talk about foreign policy for a minute. this is what the president said in a recent interview. okay, so we don't have the sound, with you -- but he was asked in an interview with telemundo if egypt was an ally, and he said they are not an ally but they are not an enemy. is the response more about the attackers or the responses from the government, especially moham
and iran is able to defend itself. look for delegations like the united states to walk out once again as soon as he starts criticizing israel. bill: there were stunning comments from pakistan's president last night. what was spoken there, jonathan? >> reporter: this is pretty extraordinary, bill. it reported on fox report but appeared to slip under the radar for a lot of media outlets because it was one of the final speeches of the day. just hours after president obama at the same podium called for tolerance and called for leaders of the muslim world to outright condemn the violence against u.s. interests that we've seen over the past couple of weeks, the pakistani president walked up to that podium, failed utterly to issue any strong condemnation of the protest, instead called on the united nations to lead a charge to make illegal for anyone, anywhere including here in the united states, to insult the prophet muhammad. listen to this. >> you can never condone violence. the international community must not become silent observer and should criminalize such attacks that destroy the pea
and federal taxes. if the united nations gets its way the united states tax me g.e.d.en could go global. >> just how friendly are our skies? "fox & friends" begins right now. snet ♪ >> good saturday morning, everyone. welcome in to "fox & friends" on this early fall morning. coming up in just about a half an hour we are going to talk about whether or not spanking should be considered a form of child abuse. one state is actually moving, perhaps, to make it that way. you could be locked up as a result of it. >> looking forward to that debate. we will answer that question. which one of us three is the funniest reporter in new york? we'll not give you any clues. >> no clues. >> i said no -- >> more on that later on in the program. >> meanwhile the top story, the news that has consumed us for the better part of two weeks now. that is what happened in benghazi? why was the message coming out of the administration so muddled at best and misleading at worse? when did they know that it was a terrorist attack? why won't the president actually use the term terrorist attack? well, yesterday there
. it was happening. in the last election, 2008 the jewish vote in the united states when 78 percent president obama. >> if you ask me about the policy of president obama regarding is relevant to you president obama was not a friend of israel. stuart: that is where i have to hand it. dagen and, carry it forward. charles: you'll be interested, we have a big story that just came in. sports related. dagen: everyone listen to this breaking news. you will want to hear it. the owners of the boston red sox have begun quietly shopping the team and are mulling a potential sale of the story baseball franchise. charles: well, charlie gasparino is the one breaking business. he joins us on the telephone with some details. >> reporter: well, full disclosure, this is coming from a yankee fan. [laughter] taken for what it's worth. people with direct knowledge of the situation, here's what we know. the boston red sox management is quietly shopping the franchise. they have had an internal discussion about selling the boston red sox. they have talked to at least one person i know about the potential sale of the price
to give -- bring their killers to justice. >> the united states of america will never retreat to the world, we will never stop working for the dignity and freedom that every person deserves, whatever their creed, whatever their faith. that's the essence of american leadership. that's the spirit that sets us apart from other nations. this was their work in benghazi and this is the work we will carry on. >> president obama today talking of the mission that so many americans do and what four american died doing. we put them front and center tonight. ambassador christopher stevens, sean smith, glen doherty and tyrone woods. joining me on the phone is ambassador stevens' stepfather. i am so sorry for your loss and please extend our condolences to your entire family. what do you want people to know about your stepson? >> well, i think what you learn today, it tells me what his legacy was at the anderson air force base when the caskets were brought back, 800 members of the state department were there and the president for the first time he spoke at one of these ceremonial dignified transfers and
.n. general assembly. probably not likely to be instituted or supported by the united states who is already the biggest contribute ter to the u.n. over 20% of the u.n. budget. here is what has been proposed. a 1% tax on billion nargs around the world. a tax on all currency trading in the u.s. a tiny tax on all financial transactions. >> how tiny? >> not sure. >> new taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets. this has for the past year these ideas have been bandied about and the overall overarching goal would be to help transfer money from richations like the united states to poor developing countries. now, what's interesting is that this would be entered into the actual record of what was discussed discussed it at t. when foxnews.com reported on this. they were suddenly sent an unsolicited statement from the u.s. mission to the u.n. the united states opposes taxes. any source of revenue should remain under the control of national authorities. this is an idea that has been kicked around for years. fortunately it hasn't gone anywhere nor will it. >> in other words, we didn't think the
attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> you know, it's hard to be -- even attempt to get it straight about that. that was the most ternl statement i've heard in a long time. he's accusing the president of something he never did. he never sympathized with the mobs. he never sympathized with someone taking the lives of americans or serving america. regular career service people over in cairo without any checking with any washington, put out a statement, just cool it over there so they should show they're not part of this, you know, absolutely outrageous disrespect. >> i think -- i don't know, mark -- what mark thinks but that was a little painful, infuriating, both painful and infuriating to watch. i'm going to give mitt romney enough credit for knowing the president in this context didn't apologize for anything. you know, did none of the things he -- >> never sympathized. >> he never sympathized or apologized. mitt romney is purr you suing a political strategy that is so nakedly and obvio
